- "On a whim, I decided to open a bottle of red. Typically not my choice in warm summer months. The name and label intrigued me at first, not realizing it was one of my wine club purchases from Biltmore. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised! This wine is rich and flavorful...so much so, that I went online to see about reorder. You won't be disappointed by this wine. Delicious and worth the splurge!" - Valerie B.
- "This blend is not just full bodied and full of flavor, it makes you want more. It is dry without being heavy in tannins. It has fruity undertones that appeal to the pinot noir crowd, yet it carries a bold and courageous ruggedness that does not back down. Great legs. Light and fruity nose, but do not be deceived. This wine is extraordinary. One bottle will probably not do when entertaining. Cheers!" - Lynda L.
